A woman from St Austell has relived the moment her chihuahua was mauled to death by another dog.
Elizabeth Martin was walking 6 year old Chopper on a lead in the Bethel area of the town, when she says they were set upon by what she describes as a 'wolf-like' dog.
Since the attack she's been too frightened to walk along the same path alone.
Chopper, who was six, died from what a vet called 'catastrophic' injuries. His lung was punctured and there were bite marks along his back.
Ms Martin says the incident caught her totally by surprise.
Since the attack Ms Martin has been too scared to walk through the area alone.
She is five months pregnant and says before Chopper was mauled she was scared the other dog might attack her.
Elizabeth is five months pregnant. She says she feared the dog may also attack her.
Ms Martin believes the other dog may have escaped from a nearby garden.
The attack happened just yards from a children's play park and she says something must be done to avoid an even worse incident in future.
The attack happened yards from a children's play park at Chapel Field.
Elizabeth has reported the incident. Devon & Cornwall Police told ITV News it's being treated as a 'dog on dog attack', and enquiries are continuing.
